The purpose of this study is to assess the safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of single and multiple intramuscular doses of Uricase-PEG 20
Uricase is an enzyme (found in most mammals but not humans) that converts poorly soluble uric acid into highly soluble allantoin. Because humans lack uricase, they are prone to develop elevated levels of uric acid, which can form crystals in the joints and soft tissues. In those which chronically elevated uric acid, gout may develop. In the setting of acute rises in uric acid, seen for example in tumor lysis syndrome, uric acid crystals can damage the renal tubules. Uricase-PEG 20 is a recombinant uricase conjugated with multiple PEG molecules designed to prolong the half-life and decrease the immunogenicity of uricase. This study will characterize the safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of intramuscular Uricase-PEG 20, the anticipated route of administration to be used in future clinical development in gout.

Gout or hyperuricemia are both well known and common diseases. The prevalence of gout is increasing worldwide. Thus, patients with gout are becoming more common. Although there are several published g...
Gout is an inflammatory arthritis characterized by abrupt self-limiting attacks of inflammation caused by precipitation of monosodium urate crystals (MSU) in the joint. Both anti-hyperuricemia and ant...
The connection between gout and various cancers remains unclear. We assessed the relationship between gout and colorectal cancer in a population of veterans.
Although studies have shown that interleukin-1β (IL-1β) inhibitors can shorten gout attacks, whether they can prevent gout attacks is unclear.
Gout, a common and complex form of inflammatory arthritis, is characterized by abnormally elevated levels of uric acid in the blood. It is estimated that 52.5 million people in the U.S. have arthritis...
Agents that increase uric acid excretion by the kidney (URICOSURIC AGENTS), decrease uric acid production (antihyperuricemics), or alleviate the pain and inflammation of acute attacks of gout.
Uricosuric that acts by increasing uric acid clearance. It is used in the treatment of gout.
An anti-inflammatory agent used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. It also has uricosuric properties and has been used to treat gout.
A thiazole derivative and inhibitor of XANTHINE OXIDASE that is used for the treatment of HYPERURICEMIA in patients with chronic GOUT.
Gout suppressants that act directly on the renal tubule to increase the excretion of uric acid, thus reducing its concentrations in plasma.
Enzymes are proteins that catalyze (i.e., increase the rates of) chemical reactions. In enzymatic reactions, the molecules at the beginning of the process, called substrates, are converted into different molecules, called products. Almost all chemical re...
